Robot Takes Care of Parts Sorting Automatically

Robot Takes Care of Parts Sorting Automatically

After observing a colleague sorting a box of screws and other assorted hardware, AdrienR decided not to help him with that job alone, but instead “simply” built a robot to do it for them. This device first takes a picture of a translucent backlit surface with parts scattered about its area, then uses a SCARA-style robot to move about the area, picking each one up with a magnet. It then deposits these parts into the correct bin.
